Disastrous morning

Standard

Yes it was an explosion of pooh, I had to deal with this morning. Sorry if this is TMI, but I had say it, it wasn’t the morning I had planned, especially being nursery day. I feel there will be others who will give me sympathy.

I thought it would be okay to have a little extra 5 minutes in bed would be okay but how wrong was I?

So I had to give son a bath before nursery this morning and then get him dressed, take him to nursery and then clean up the mess, wasn’t even 8 o’clock.

After cleaning up the mess oh and I forgot to mention I had a blocked toilet to sort out too. My fault, putting baby wipes down the toilet is a big NO NO.

Apart from that I managed to catch up on some TV and watched a lovely program about David Jason, his life on TV and how he became a big household name, was great to watch. Only Fools and Horses is my ultimate favourite, and I wish it could come back just one last time.

Then caught up with TOWIE, I know but I am allowed one guilty pleasure. Last night I watch the Great British Bake Off and Doctor Foster, and I have gotten back into Eastenders after 10 years or so.

I was watching some old ones, and got me wanting to watch the recent episodes. I have no idea really what is going on, but it was good to watch it again.

Please check out my new book review on my main site that I wrote today,

I didn’t do much for my wedding anniversary, we had a drink in doors with our dinner, as we had a take away, then watched TV in bed, that was it.

So I would love to know what you’ve been up to, and how your weeks been, please comment below, What is your favourite show David Jason was in, and do you know what has been happening in Eastenders please I would love for someone to fill me in.

Many thanks for reading,

Places to go and people to see

Standard

I thoroughly enjoyed the Athletic World Championships this year that ended last Sunday, and so happy that Great Britain and Northern Ireland did well in the relays. The Gold medal our boys won in the 4×100 relay was so unexpected that it made the championships even more amazing, as unfortunately Moy Farah didn’t get another gold in the 10,000 metres.

My son now keeps mimicking the runners, and runs across our living room floor, so you never know I could end up having a 100 metres sprinter in our home, who knows!

Now we have the football season again, but not as excited this year, as it is so much about the money that it has lost its spark in my opinion, I know there will be people reading this shouting NO, but sorry it has.

It has been a good week took my son Swimming for the first time and he was so confident that he was like a little WATER BABY, and didn’t freak out once, as I had originally suspected. We took him to Richmond Pools, which had a childrens heated pool. Thank you mum, as now I want to go swimming again, it is such good exercise and fun, that you can do it as a whole family activity.

Here’s a picture of my niece, Gracie and Henry eating some lunch together, which I took yesterday in Wimbledon Park, which has a little water fountain which children can play in, but Henry and Gracie were not interested in that so they played on the swings.

Wimbledon Park is a lovely park and not far away from the Wimbledon Tennis. It has about 3 playgrounds with different climbing frames and swings, and a cafe where you can have something to eat, and a lake where you can feed the ducks and the swans.

If you are near the Wimbledon area, do check out Wimbledon Park, great location for kids and there are gates to each playground so kids can’t easily get out. They even had some bouncy castles there yesterday too, and Henry and Gracie enjoyed it so much they both fell asleep in the car on the way back home.

Great place to go for a picnic this time of year. This weekend coming my hubby and I are going to have some time out just the two of us, and going to Southampton for the weekend to celebrate his brother’s, who passed away last year life, and spend sometime with his family.

So I will report back next week, until then many thanks for reading,

Thunderstorms

Standard

What a thunderstorm we had lastnight?

And yes it did wake me up. However lucky my son didn’t wake up.

I ended putting the TV on at about 3am, as I struggled to get back to sleep.

It is thunderstorms that clears the air, and I know some people love to watch. I myself I am not afraid to admit are still scared of thunderstorms, so I am not the type of person who will watch it all from my window. I prefer that all the curtains to be closed and to have one window open.

I used as a kid hide underneath the school table if we had a thunderstorm whilst in class, and would dread having a thunderstorm in the middle of night as I know I would be awake the entire night.

Thunder, Thunderstorm, Violet, Purple, Storm, Weather

One thing it has done is made today cooler, and I woke up after the thunderstorm had finished with putting the radio on listening to some tunes on magic FM.

The radio station I mainly listen to when in my husbands has his car is, Radio Jackie whom play some brilliant music.

I did watch the The Voice Kids UK and I predicted the winner, as I knew that final performance by the girl Jess, that she seemed to take a step up above the rest.

I thought it was in all a brilliant show, and thought the The Voice UK kids shows that they don’t necessarily have a record deal, but opens up doors for them to become a singer and pop star in the future.

I haven’t caught up with Doctor Who as of yet, to see him regenerate into a woman.

I will be interested in how the new doctor will be like now that he is now a she.

I did watch an old film lastnight called The First Knight starring Richard Gere and Sean Connery. That film seems quite tame after watching The Game Of Thrones, as that has people getting their heads ripped off.

Of course it is all film made, but boy is Game Of Thrones gory or what?

 

I did enjoy the Wimbledon Tennis this year, my predictions were wrong as I did think that Andy Murray would made it to the the final, but it was still a good tournament. My son is obsessed with playing tennis now, which he calls “Test”.

It is good to make the most of what they enjoy, and encourage their enjoyment. Of course it does take its toil when your child expects to play it all day long.

Anyway that it what I have been up to, and there will be more to come soon.

Many thanks for reading,

Keep The Faith In Others

Standard

I was going to type on here this morning at about 4am when I was wide awake and needed to get on with something. Yes that isn’t a typing error that was the time. I had woken from a dream and could hear my husband chatting to our son, whilst changing his nappy. Thank you hubby.

Then he made me a cup of tea and I was wide awake so got up to do some work on the computer but had already started something else that I had left from yesterday so got on with that instead and edited a video, ready to publish. It’s uploading now.

I just this minute as I continue write this blog, added the music in part of my video. It is a recipe. Banana Loaf Cake from All Recipes http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/8729/easy-banana-cake.aspx 

I then once finished editing my video, became tired again and did manage to get another hour or so of sleep.

Sorry I had put this blog on hold for half an hour or so. I got the chance to have a nice hot bath, using Avon Golden Moments bubble bath. I don’t always get the luxury of a bath these days, so when an opportunity comes along I make the most of it.

See photo of the bubble bath below, take from:

Avon Golden Moments Bubble Bath

I took my son to the doctors yesterday because his cold seemed to be getting worse and usually when that happens it means he is developing a Chest Infection. Lucky whilst waiting in the surgery to see the doctor and Henry was about to kick off my husband turned up to meet me. We waited over an hour.

Once seen by the doctor it was literally 10 minutes in and then out.

Lucky my son is all good and it is just a cold.

I do dread doctors surgery now because every time I have gone there I have had to wait for ages. It does appear that we are struggling for GP’s and doctors. You think of the size of this country and the amount of people we have living here, you can’t help but think why.

There was another mum there too who had two children. One who was I would say near to Henry’s age and an older child. They helped entertain Henry too with no questions asked, especially the older child. The little one was a bit resistant, but she was only tiny. They were doing High five and Henry kept wanting to hug the younger child, and then cheer as he does when he does high five. He does love other children. As soon as he sees other children playing he is off.

I forgot to say to the mum and her two children thank you. As they were a great help in keeping my son from having a breakdown. I have experience snobby mums, but when meeting the mum like I did yesterday helps to restore my faith in people.

Thank you to the lady and her children they are a credit to the world and society.

So I better go now as I can hear that Henry is awake, but I will blog again on this site next week.

Many thanks for reading,
